Speaking of fish- Nthn Hemi/Sthn Hemi substitutes

Hi,
Does anyone have a site/book/whatever that gives substitutes for Northern Hemisphere fish to varieties that are available in the Southern Hemisphere (Oz)?

Read so many recipes with fish in them that are not available here (at least by the name given).

Would be simpler (for me, at least) if writers wrote something like "firm white fish".

Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

I have problems with this too maree, if you find a solution let me know.

Also travelling from the south of Australia, where i live to the north, say Qld. or NT seafood that is beautifull at home is horrible there it's apparantley to do with the higher ammonium content in the water

Dani, this site doesn't solve the Northern/Southern Hemisphere problem, but it does help solve the various names of fish available in Australia:
www.fishnames.com.au. It was in "Good Living" in the Sydney Morning Herald about 6-8 weeks ago in an article on fish sustainability.

Let's hope someone comes up with something. At least, thanks to Sadie, we know to use schnapper or red perch for monkfish. Now for the others ...

Hi Maree,

I used Trevally last Easter to make Jamie's sea bass in a bag recipe,
if that helps at all. I cooked up beautifully.

Thanks  Maree and Shammy, I believe flat head is also a suitable substitute for monkfish
